Israeli inheritance law is a complex and ever-changing field of law. It is governed by a number of different statutes, including the Succession Law, the Inheritance Tax Law, and the Probate Law. The law governing inheritance in Israel is based on the principle of freedom of testation, which means that a person is free to dispose of their property as they see fit in their will. However, there are a number of limitations on this principle, such as the requirement that a will be properly executed and that it does not violate any mandatory rules of inheritance.

If a person dies without a will, their property will be distributed according to the laws of intestacy. The laws of intestacy are complex and they can vary depending on the circumstances of the deceased person’s family. In general, however, the laws of intestacy provide that the deceased person’s property will be distributed to their spouse, children, and parents.

An experienced Israeli lawyer can help you to:

  • Identify the deceased’s assets
  • Locate the deceased’s will
  • File the petition for probate
  • Serve the petition on the deceased’s heirs
  • Represent you in court if necessary

    We can help with any Israeli probate matter and can assist with the following common procedures:

    Obtaining Grant of Probate

    A probate process must take place in Israel before the Israeli estate can be disbursed when the deceased left a valid will, either in Israel or in another country. With our extensive knowledge of the probate process in Israel, we have handled hundreds of probate applications successfully.

    Obtaining Grant of Letters of Administration

    The estate will be distributed according to Israeli laws of intestacy if the will is void or if there is no will.

    Administration of deceased’s assets

    The deceased’s assets should be investigated, gathered, secured, and managed. An administrator will pay any debts or liabilities, manage the shares of minor beneficiaries, sell assets, and distribute the estate to beneficiaries. We have handled complexed cases involving offshore structures, financial products and international tax issues. Our team of experienced administrators is regularly appointed by Israeli courts.

    Disputing the validity of the Will

    Our firm represented applicants in cases where a will was allegedly made under duress, undue influence, or when the testator was mentally unfit. We have won court cases involving evidentiary issues, breach of statutory duties, laws and regulations, and by the agreement of the opponents after using tactical legal moves.
